Remember Uncle Rico from the movie Napoleon Dynamite? His resume would say - “Back in 82 he could throw the pigskin a quarter mile”
Would you hire Uncle Rico to lead your college football team? I doubt it, but his high school football resume and mouth says he is great.
You have heard this before. People are more than their resumes. They really are.
Just because they worked at Facebook, doesn’t make them good at hustle and hard work.
Just because they went to Harvard doesn’t mean they can bring revenue into your company.
Just because they were the “Head of Sales” doesn’t mean they can close deals.
Just because they have some short stints on their resume doesn’t mean you shouldn’t talk with them.
